Wheeling 250 Celebration Organizer Honored

Wheeling 250 Anniversary Celebration organizer Jay Frey, right, is shown at the Wheeling 250 Ball with Michael Hires during last year’s anniversary celebration. For his efforts, Frey has been awarded the 2020 Community Spirit Award by U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. The award states in part, “What makes Mountain State so special is not only its rich historical legacy, but also the people who take great pride in maintaining our knowledge of this history. That is Jay’s contribution to the Wheeling community and its 250-year milestone last year. His leadership and creative thinking was paramount in making the year’s events so successful.”
